GLADSTONE, Mo. (AP) -- An AT&T technician has died after someone attacked him while he worked in a suburban Kansas City, Missouri neighborhood.
Kevin M. Mashburn managed to pull himself into his service truck and radio for help after he was struck in the head early Wednesday in Gladstone.
A family member says a coworker told Mashburn to turn on the truck’s flashing light and drive to a populated area where someone could see him. The Kansas City Star reported that Masbhurn was unconscious when police and paramedics arrived.
Police Capt. Jeff Self says Mashburn was rushed to a hospital, where he died.
Self didn’t release other details about the assault. There were no immediate arrests.
AT&T said in a written statement that the company was “deeply saddened by the tragic death.”
